Trivia

Homer's imagination of a life of organized crime is based on Don Fanucci's first appearance in The Godfather Part II, accepting donuts rather than a necklace and an orange. See more »

Goofs

The nitrous oxide cylinder at the end of the episode is marked N²O. Chemical formulas use subscript for numbers, at least nowadays (the original Berzeluis notation used superscript and was still used during the first half of the 20th century). See more »

Good, not excellent Simpsons episode
12 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Series 4 of 'The Simpsons' was a good example of the show at its absolute peak. However I didn't enjoy this episode.

I thought it was a bit slow to get started and ended on a cheap joke (everybody laughing as the credits role) to cover the fact that they'd run out of plot.

There are some lovely moments though. I liked the 'Grinch' style scene with Burns and of course the classic moment where Homer spins around the boardroom table. If you're unsure of what I mean, watch the clip, it's great.

I know that others on this site have said it's a brilliant episode, and that's fine, but for me there are other episodes that deserve the title of 'classic' more.
